Artificial Intelligence is no longer a figment of the future or a mere buzzword. By one estimate, AI has already contributed over $2 trillion to global GDP, and could contribute as much as $15.7 trillion by 2030 AI is also one of the fastest growing sectors for our client base, and raises critical IP, privacy, and other legal issues at every phase of implementation and development. From data collection and database maintenance, to deep learning and neural networks, to protecting AI’s insights and creative byproducts, AI presents cutting-edge issues in patent, trade secret, copyright, products liability, and privacy law.

We have long worked with AI-focused tech companies such as NVIDIA, Google/Waymo, Qualcomm, Samsung, Primer, and SoundHound to adeptly navigate the legal landscape, and have had great success safeguarding their most valuable investments and innovations. For example, we recently represented Waymo in its historic case against Uber involving the misappropriation of trade secrets relating to Waymo’s AI and LIDAR technology for autonomous driving.
